Arts Innovation and Management

HELPING NONPROFIT CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS BUILD THEIR CAPACITY

The Arts Innovation and Management program (AIM) is helping 260 small- and mid-sized nonprofit cultural organizations strengthen their organizational capacity and programming in six cities nationwide including Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

SUPPORTING THE ARTS WITH UNRESTRICTED FUNDS AND MANAGEMENT TRAINING

Launched in 2015, this invitation-only grant program provides $30 million in unrestricted general operating support to  a wide range of organizations, including theater, visual arts, music, film, literature, and dance. Through this two-year program, grantees are participating in a robust training program, developed by the DeVos Institute of Arts Management. As part of this training program, grantees will receive one-on-one, in-depth consultation and six intensive group training seminars in artistic planning, fundraising, marketing, audience engagement through digital platforms, strategic planning, and board development. Grantees are also required to secure matching funds; ensure 100% board participation in fundraising; and maintain up-to-date information in DataArts (formerly Cultural Data Project), an online management system for cultural organizations.
